Sustainable Digital Tools for All Energy Actors Workshop
Day 3 | Thursday 29th October | 11.00 - 12.30
Digitalisation is helping improve the safety, productivity, accessibility, and sustainability of energy systems around Europe. The greatest transformational potential for digitalisation is its ability to break down boundaries between energy sectors, increasing flexibility and enabling integration across entire systems. That fact is evidenced by many European projects working on this field where digital technologies are set to make energy systems for the different actors more connected, intelligent, efficient, reliable, and sustainable.
The objective of this workshop was to present the ICT tools developed in these H2020 project that will increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies. Each project presented the digital tools being developed in order to provide ICT services and functionalities to the different actors of the energy value chain, which will make them more sustainable and efficient.
These complementary tools will enable all the energy actors to control and manage their part of the grid in a more efficient way and participate actively in the energy market. The end-users of these tools could be citizens, energy communities, DSO, TSO, Market Operator, etc. in order to cover all the energy value chain. This way, it will be possible to create a win-win situation, providing benefits and more power to both the grid operators and the final consumers, building greener and more liveable cities.
The length of the workshop was approximately 100 minutes and it was moderated by the project coordinator of X-FLEX. Each project pitched the goals, benefits, progress, and impact of their sustainable digital tools, in approximately 15 minutes. The session closed with a round table by all participants, where it was analysed the workshop lessons learned and explored digitalised sustainable energy systems in the future.
